Question: Do you think Finlandia is really a dry* campus?
*dry: prohibition of alcohol and/or drugs
Kallie Gentile, Junior, Dual-Enrolled MTU Electrical Engineering: “It’s really not, because you see people smoking and drinking all the time on campus. Everyone does it, but I guess people are just so good at it nowadays that those students don’t get caught.”
Liliana Lazo, Sophomore, Criminal Justice: “No, I don’t believe that Finlandia is a dry campus AT ALL. I feel like [university officials] can’t even expect that of students, because there is no way a college campus is going to be a dry campus, especially when it’s this small where there isn’t really anything to do.”
“No, because you walk outside and there are bottle caps everywhere.” – Josh
“That’s true. I’m going to say no because lots of alcohol containers are scattered throughout the premises. There’s an empty forty out by my car. Not my forty.” – Jake
“And we will see as soon as the snow melts in the back of the [dorms] how many bottle people have tossed out their windows.” – Josh
